Waterfalls of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan: Watery Wednesday

After spending five days in the UP of Michigan, we only scratched the surface of the waterfall possibilities. We visited about 10 waterfalls but missed many more in the general vicinity. We explored some of the Lake Superior coast and saw the huge dunes and cliffs in the region. The last night of our trip we found a juvenile plumaged Northern Goshawk and the following morning we spotted an Evening Grosbeak, both of which were target birds for us. We also saw many species of breeding warblers including Mourning, Canada, and a Blackburnian feeding a fledging at eye level.

Here are a couple pics of some of the impressive waterfalls in the UP.
